From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

This gorgeous luxury liner has undergone a complete body off frame restoration. It was given mechanical upgrades to make it perform better then new too- overdrive, rack & pinion, aluminum radiator and more. The bottom is painted like the top. Wow does this one make a statement! The stylish, yet massive body looks like red glass, the abundance of chrome is restored like a mirror and it rolls on a set of big white walls and sparkling spokes. Think you will get noticed? No doubt! 1 owner since 1994 until he recently passed away. Not many miles since he had it restored to the jewel it is now. EXTERIOR: The body is laser beam straight, all 19 feet of it. The panels fit beautifully, I dont see any signs of rust, damage or bubbles. The paint looks like its red glass. The white painted roof is just as nice. The jambs are painted slick.. new windshield and weatherstrips. The man spent a fortune at the chrome platers. The big giant bumpers and bumperettes, hood trim, hood ornament, door handles, side trim is replated. The stainless looks like its been straightened and polished. The chrome wire wheels sparkle. We just installed a new set of BFG radial wide white wall tires. As if it wasnt already long enough this one has a continental kit on the back adding another foot. The exhaust is routed out through the back bumper like it would have been originally. INTERIOR: Very comfortable interior, the seats are nice and firm. The white upholstery is not new but very good. The red inserts are new, same on the door panels. The red carpet has been replaced. The white perforated headliner and visors look new, it still has the chrome ribs and working dome lights. The dash area is very nice. The metal trim is repainted, the padded dash has been restored, the chrome trim is in very nice shape, steering wheel is not cracked. Features include power windows and seat. Upgraded LED dash lights and a CD stereo is mounted below the dash. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It is obvious this motor compartment was completely taken apart down to the last nut and bolt. Everything is painted a smooth, glossy finish. The bottom of the hood and engine bay is gloss red. Up in front of the radiator is gloss black. The motor is painted Cadillac blue and has hand striped valve covers. Every component looks new or restored. It has factory power steering, power brakes, an oil filter and a washer bottle. The 365-305 hp motor was rebuilt and has the dual quads: 2 new Edelbrock carbs. Other upgrades include an aluminium radiator and an alternator instead of a generator. Every thing looks new from the regulator to the pulleys. The battery is bolted down properly, new cables. Show quality! TRUNK COMPARTMENT: There are no bodies, I checked! It was lined with sound deadener then professionally carpeted. New cardboard side panels. The bottom of the trunk lid is painted gloss red, weather strip was replaced. UNDERSIDE: The body was removed from the frame. The clean metal under body was prepped and painted a gloss red. The chassis was prepped and painted black. The front end was completely taken apart, rebuilt and detailed. It was upgraded with a rack & pinion steering. The springs and shocks were replaced in back. The bottom of the motor is spotless, has a high torque starter. The trans is upgraded with a 700R-4 overdrive automatic that has an external oil cooler. New fuel tank, straps, sending unit and lines. The brake system was restored. Dual exhaust has cross over pipe. This car is so impressive. The quality is much higher then you typically see in an old Cadillac.
